This Historic London Townhouse Got a Mies-Inspired Extension

A 19th-century, north London townhouse recently got the mod treatment from local firm Paul Archer Design, comprising a sable-hued marble slab column and glass walls. Nestled in the city's Islington neighb', the party in the back annex accommodates a skylit dining room. According to Dezeen, the design team was inspired by the elemental simplicity of work by modernists like Mies van der Rohe, who, too, was a fan of marble slabs and monoliths. The other interiors in the five-story house also got a bit of a revamp courtesy of Paul Archer Design, and the annex is just the cherry on the sundae.
